A little bit of background

On many occasions I’ve thought about writing a blog. Thoughts like, “I’m so funny I should share this with the world” often float through my mind while thinking of a blog. Funny things happen and I think “this would make a great blog post”. Now that I have a blog, I hope that I am funny and my experiences make great blog posts. I guess you will all be able to judge that.

That being said, here is a little background on me and the family. Phil, my hubby, and I met at work and literally started dating after a coworker said to me “Joelle, you go out to bars and Phil goes out to bars maybe you should ask him to go to a bar with you”. Made perfect sense to me and the rest has made good sense too.

We got engaged in Cancun after I used my beer-chugging skills to win a contest and Phil was over-whelmed with joy, dropped to his knees and proposed! I accepted, we got married nine months later, and moved into our house eight months later.

After a wonderful (seriously, I was so healthy and never sick) pregnancy and one of the easiest births in history, Natalie Elizabeth was born in November and we couldn’t be happier!

Now that everyone is caught up we can get on with the new posts…I’ll update you on Natalie, Phil and everything else that is going on around us. Hope you find it as funny as I think it is.

  2. hurrah, hurrah! welcome to blogging, friend. this is going to be good!
